Happy Labor Day, party people!
Saturday was beautiful so I spent most of the day on my front porch reading. It was glorious. I only stopped once the sun went down and I couldn't see any more. Yesterday, the husband and I had hoped to camp and explore Moraine State Park but it rained instead so we made the most out of it and went to grab lunch from our favorite Mexican restaurant in the city then headed to The Warhol Museum. Like I mentioned before, I am not a huge museum-y person so I have never been before. However, this may be one of my favorite museums I have ever been to - which is not saying much since I haven't really been to many. I loved browsing his pieces and seeing the evolution of his art. He must have been one of the most interesting people to meet in person.
How was your long weekend?Etsy. Didn't do well with this. I get very overwhelmed by it all. I just need to set small goals for myself. Although, I did sell this photo to my sister-in-law!
Video: complete video I am making for my girlfriends before Mom heads back to school. D-O-N-E
Run: run at least 2 miles, twice a week with a longer - 3+ mile - run one day. The first run I attempted after falling was good but only got .5 miles. Hope to build back up this month.
Blog: I will write and schedule posts. Besides the accidental week break I took, I have been good about writing posts while the husband is at work. I wrote this one on Saturday!Photograph: I have been in a funk with taking photos lately but this post from Taylor reminded me "the rush" I get when taking photos. I have still been leaving the big camera at home. Ugh.
project: research and work on a project that I have been wanting to do for friends of ours since they got married.
gifts: I would like to buy at least three gifts for Christmas this month. I do realize it is only September but I don't want to be spending so much at Christmas since we will be travelling.
read: I have 10 more books to finish before the end of the year to meet my 25 books goals in 2014 I set for myself. I am confident it can be done since I have three that still need to be finished and one lined for book club in October.
pin & tweet: I would like to be better about pinning and tweeting, especially my stuff. I would like to make it a habit and spend a few minutes at a time on each throughout the day. Any good tweeting and pinning suggestions?
photos: Have the big camera with me more. There have been so many moments recently where I have wished I had it with me.
get up: get up when my alarm goes off. I have gotten into the habit of hitting the snooze button two times too many in the morning.
health: lift, run and walk more as well as eat better. I haven't kept track on MyFitnessPal much lately nor have I weighed myself. I think I need to take a break and just go on how I feel. And this past week, I felt pretty good.
Did you set goals for yourself in August?
How did you do?
What are your goals for September?
